Grades and Designations are mere words that describe some concepts that an organization holds as far its Human Resource is concerned.

In common parlance, in HR, one should understand that a "Designation" should be indicative of the function or the job that the holder is expected to perform, and a "Grade" should describe the salary/wage, allowances and other benefits, if any, that all occupants of the grade will be eligible to receive.

It can happen that one Designation may cover multiplicity of grades depending either the seniority or competence of the individuals holding the designation, and its also possible there are can be many Designations to whom the same grade may apply.

For example, the designation "Executive" may cover grades, E-1, E-2, E-3 etc. and one grade, SS-1 may be applied to various designations like, Peons, Drivers, Assistants and so on.

The point to remember is that the hierarchy of both, the Grades and of Designations, represent , always the the order of significance the organization attaches to them.

Both have to be established in tune with Organization's philosophy, culture, capacity, and organization of work (i.e. functionalization) as also the organization of employment (i.e emolument structure and levels of significance to the organization).

I hope, this reply would clear your confucion about the words and the concepts. If it doesn't, raise further queries. Would be glad to respond!

You can grade them further based on experience & salary
Example Take Exceutive Position
E1 Exceutive Senior Grade 10-12 yrs exp 15000-20000
E2 Executive Grade I 8-10 yrs exp 10000-15000
E3 Executive Grade II 6-8 yrs exp 7500-10000
E4 Executive Grade III 4-5 yrs exp. 5000-7500

While recruiting the candidate you can grade them based on the experience and salary
Each Job position you can grade like above

Hello Sir, I am a silent member of this site.I feel executive is more. with regards, shruthi.
I realy doubt whether there is any position called executive...The Executive cadre includes all between Manager, General Managers to top executives like Directors.Normally in comapnies we have position like officer,sr. officer,asst. Manager,Dty. Manager,Manager.....followed by Deputy General Manager,then General Manager etc..
Even Marketing Executive or Management Trainee could be below an officer or officer cadre and on completing probation they may be considered as an officer.Anyway according to my knowledge..i havent seen a position called executive.
of course there are designations such as executive and senior exective, etc. but both officer and executive are very vague and can depend on the organization where such terms are used.
Incidentally, can anyone help me out in finding out what is current salary trend in IT industry??

Ruchika, If such designations are there...how are they positioned in an industry...i would like to know whether they are above officers. Jayas
my observation and experience shows that at most places officers and executives are interchangeable. Correct me if i am wrong but Executive is a sophisticated replacement for officer.
Officer is passe and Executive is hip.

Ruchika, I liked the way you expressed...hip and passe. Anyway,just tell me by what name will you classify the group 'Manager to Directors', while grading. Have a nice day.
well to be honest, we are also using the same old terms in our organization. In our Manufacturing unit we use Manager, Operations & Production or Senior Manager, or Manufcturing Associate. For our IT team we use Lead Developer, Practice Manager, Principal.
Maybe someone can tell me what is the current trend in the industry, because in IT we keep changing the designations.
